Week Ahead: County Council and Board of Education To Host Town Halls This Week

Plus: Snow possible Monday night


County Council to host community Town Hall in White Oak

Montgomery County Council members will be on hand Wednesday night at the White Oak Community Center to hear from community members at a town hall meeting. The meeting is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. at 1700 April Lane in Silver Spring.

The council will also continue its work this week on reviewing the county’s proposed six-year capital budget. On Tuesday, the council is expected to discuss and likely approve the capital budgets for the Public Arts Trust, Health and Human Services Department, Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission, recreation department and the fire, police and corrections departments.

On Monday afternoon, the council’s Planning, Housing and Economic Development Committee will hold a work session on a bill proposed by council President Hans Riemer to require developers to make sure 15 percent of dwelling units are moderately priced in projects constructed in areas with low percentages of students that qualify for free and reduced meals.

Board of Education invites students to annual Town Hall

The county’s school board plans to host a town hall for students at 7 p.m. at the Gaithersburg High School cafeteria. The annual meeting provides students with an outlet to express their school-related concerns to the board, which proposes budgets and policies for Montgomery County Public Schools.

On Thursday the board is scheduled to hold a facilities and boundaries work session. Superintendent Jack Smith plans to present his recommendations for amendments to the fiscal 2019 capital budget and the six-year fiscal 2019 to 2024 capital improvement plan at the work session. That meeting begins at 5 p.m. at the school board headquarters at 850 Hungerford Drive in Rockville.

At-large County Council candidates to meet at forum Thursday

About half the Democratic candidates running for four at-large County Council seats will appear at a forum Thursday evening at Leisure World. The event starts at 7 p.m. in the senior center’s clubhouse ballroom at 3700 Rossmoor Blvd., Silver Spring. It will feature the Democratic at-large candidates who didn’t participate in the first forum held last week at Leisure World.

Snow possible Monday night, chillier temperatures to linger

There’s a chance of rain and snow after 2 p.m. Monday and continuing through the night when a high of 40 and low around 31 degrees is expected, according to the National Weather Service. Tuesday through Friday is predicted to be mostly sunny with highs in the mid-40s and lows dropping to the mid-30s at night.
